Puja was a housewife, while her husband runs a manufacturing job business.

ASI Singh said that Puja wanted to buy a value of Rs15,000, but Vishal bought him a phone for Rs7,500. She was not happy about that and there was a dispute between the couple on this issue on Wednesday night.

Around 1.30 in the morning, Vishal woke up when he heard his daughter cry. He tried to open the door, but it was locked inside. When she did not respond, he looked through the fan and found it hanging from the ceiling. Immediately she broke the door and hurried to approach her, where the doctors declared that she had been taken dead.
